Lead me from distraction

Tuesday morning fodder.  The other day while at the grocery store, they had put out pumpkin muffins, definitely a downfall for me.  Usually my first pumpkin treat is a Pumpkin Latte from Starbucks but somehow I have managed to resist but these muffins just kept calling and I walked out with some.  So this morning I got a wonderful cup of latte and a muffin and I am sitting at the computer just cruisin and I look over and that muffin looked like one of the most perfect muffins I had ever seen, LOL.  So I got the camera and took a picture and sure enough it was a beautiful muffin.  My first thought was that I was going to sketch it and then I decided to take it to Photoshop and do an extraction, which came out pretty good.  So then I took the muffin to my Cameo mat and did a select image and full trace on it, I then did cut lines and then took it to line color and did "black", hmmmm, I am liking this a digi from a photograph.  Then I printed it with my pen and cut it and then played with Copics and finally added just a touch of "stickles" on the top.  Some EKSuccess punched hearts.  Background paper by Barbara Ann Williams from "Cuddly Buddly".  A little scalloped border with some baker's twine.  Morning confection with an offset (internal) and I have a card.  Now do you see where this is going?  Every morning I ask to be led in peace and love, but I really need to add to also be led from distraction, lol. 

 And here is the offending muffin that led me to distraction:

Hope every one has a great day, hugs

How funny! I'm afraid I would have eaten the muffin before I thought of taking its picture! You must have great restraint! Your card is very cute!

Yum, first of all, that muffin is ...yum. The card is yum too....and I loved reading about how you created it. Half of the stuff I don't even understand because I have never really seen the Cameo at work....but you've mastered it, like everything you do.
Love the card.
